“Please take note there are locals at this break, it is not a free for all zone. Show respect and you will get waves, disrespect the surfer's code and you likely to have a short and unpleasant session finding yourself on the wrong side of the local Greenpoint Surfrider Foundation and its members.”

We hope you find the new 12-day forecasts and additional details useful.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
